Ratings and Reviews
Really what I needed
Well to start off, I'm really surprised that I'm the only person that will have reviewed this app. However, I'm really looking forward to an update because there are so many ways it can be improved!!
1. The Twitter doesn't seem to be updated quite often. Also the interface can be a bit glitchy (keyboard not going away, etc.)
2. I love the help near you option! I also wish there could be a more advanced logging tool for moods as opposed to just my high and low moods and suicidal thoughts.
3. The option to choose a profile picture from my camera roll would also be nice.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how this app develops because it's helped me a lot so far.
Great pocket app
Good app for having a safety plan in place. I think the design could be a bit better but overall purposeful and had a lot of opportunity to grow.
Has potential and is quiet functional but some of the features are not working at this point. Therapist locator, support group finder , treatment services locator and live chat are not working. Overall a very good app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
